your what stephanie cutter said. >> the middle class has been buried by the same policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to go back to. you shouldn't be cutting taxes for those at the top and asked the middle class to talk about it. >> should mitt romney talk about that tonight or does he not go for the as we just heard major say, sort of responding to the video clip of the day? >> i agree with dan rather and major garrett were saying. the way and the manner in which you do this, you can disagree, but you don't want to be disagreeable. there's a real difference and a fine line there, but clearly, mitt romney is running because the prescription that president obama and joe biden have put forward over the last four years is failing this country and mitt romney will then articulate what he wants to do for the country moving forward. this one's focused totally on domestic policy. that will give the voters a great opportunity to see what the democratic line going back to bush and all that is simply not true. that is not what mitt romney is advocating. absolutely not. >> it is a dome

. that's according to the tax policy center. they figured it out. even when romney gives specifics he doesn't answer the questions. e we still don't know how he plans to pay for the tax cuts without hurting the middle class. paul ryan is sticking to his reason for not giving any specifics to chris wallace on fox news. he said he had no time. >> i'm going to give you the time now to answer the question. >> when i start getting the numbers. >> that's right. >> ryan was given the time by bloomberg television. he had a new excuse for not being specific. he says mitt romney can't show congress all of his cards before he gets elected. >> you don't say to congress to democrats you want to work with, take it or leave it. it's all my way or the highway. you say here's my framework. obviously, the numbers add up. we have shone that. >> hang on a second. ryan says they have shown these numbers and shown how they work. folks, they have not. it's impossible to show how numbers work when you refuse to provide the numbers. this is what the debate moderator and the american people need to watch out f

buried by the policies which ryan and romney supported. that's how the day ended. what percentage of the policies the president says he's been working this hard on, the policies he's running or reelection on put the middle class in the position that they are in. >> reporter: that's a value judgment. that's an opinion. the president says he's only responsible for 10% of the accumulated debt during his presidency. he blames bush for the accumulated debt prior to his presidency and during this presidency. obama tried to blame bush and his predecessors for the predicament of the middle class. jamie: tonight is the debate and the economy will be front and center. would you expect the president to admit any of this policies did not work? >> reporter: i would expect the president would deflect attention away from his record. if if you ask where is the middle class going next year after the election, you have -- i would say that the middle class is going to get maybe even worse off because we look like we are head for a real slowdown in the economy and the word recession next year has been u

good about t. he clarified and said it's because of the romney and ryan policies that they were buried over the larger period than four yierz, but it's a bad comment. it's the four years that you are going to have president obama trying to defend -- tomorrow night. >> the problem is, joe biden talked about the one thing he was not supposed to talk about on the campaign. this is what the obama administration has been militant about -- they want to talk about the bad things of the bush administration and the things they may do in the future that will make them better. they don't want to talk about the last four years, in particular the fact that there arguably has know been a worse times for the middle class than in the past four years. >> this is the message they were trying to send. i saw a word analysis of the republican and the democratic convention. the words middle class mp used 10 time more at the democratic convention. he completely stepped -- >> greta: what would possess him to do that one? to say that the middle class was buried the last four years. even if he said 10 ye
